Wetting my Wings with iMovie

It’s a gas playing with my movies! It can be a hassle converting them into the right kind of file for iMovie. First I open an mpeg with the latest ($30) version of Quicktime ™ version 10.0. Next I save it as an iPod ready file under the Save As menu. Then I go into iMovie and import the file.

It is so fun playing with the credits and splices of movie, dubbing, music. I’d like to learn how to get the soundtrack to trail off at the end, rather than just cut off. Any one in Blogland with an answer to that one is welcome to comment. (I am using iMovie ’09). Feel free to watch my shogun cat video over and over again. I swear I created it the day before the earthquake!


About Russell Smith

I was born at the American Hospital in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France. I find inspiration in the lives of so many people from Joan of Arc to Oscar Wilde. While my primary avocation is photography, I also enjoy philosophy, theology and most of all, history. My beloved wife, Robin Anne Smith, who passed away in 2013 is also an inspiration to me. My beloved partner, Dana is also a great support and inspiration to me. I'd be remiss if I did not mention my cats: Natasha, Maxwell, Tigger and Nigel.
